Every year, during the week of the Winter Solstice, people in Burlington pause to reflect on those who are homeless in our community. The annual COTS Candlelight Vigil takes place on the Burlington City Hall steps on the Church Street Marketplace.

Readers share stories of adults and children in our community who have faced the crisis of homelessness this year.

This is a moving event and an opportunity to take time out during the hectic holiday season to remember the struggles and challenges of the past year.

Leahy, Sanders And Welch Back Legislation To Restore Net Neutrality

In a joint statement, Leahy, Sanders, and Welch said: “A free and open internet is essential to our economy, a free flow of ideas, creativity, and participatory democracy. The Administration’s decision to repeal net neutrality is bad for our democracy and bad for consumers and entrepreneurs, especially in rural areas, and a gift to the big telecom companies who can now pick and choose who has access to the internet and at what speed. Our legislation will reverse this anti-consumer move and ensure that the internet remains open and accessible to all Americans.”
